You need to learn how to search for info. This topic has been addressed many times in this forum and is mentioned in detail in the app database for eve-online at winehq.org

read though here for info on running eve in wine (including multiple clients).

http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=22134

or search though these forums, this question has been answered many times.

BalasCascais,

I know the search sucks in the forums, so I won't fault you asking a simple question.

This can be answered at the following URL on the EVEWiki

http://wiki.eveonline.com/en/wiki/Install_EVE_on_linux_with_wine#Running_multiple_clients_from_the_same_EVE_directory

Quote:
Running multiple clients from the same EVE directory

Create two launchers, and set the first launcher's command to wine explorer /desktop=EVE,800x600 "C:\Program Files\CCP\EVE\eve.exe" and the second launcher's command to wine explorer /desktop=EVE2,800x600 "C:\Program Files\CCP\EVE\eve.exe". Set 800x600 to whatever resolution you are using. If you need more than 2 clients, don't forget to change the name (ie /desktop=EVE3, /desktop=EVE4, etc).


Essentially, if you can get one copy of EVE working, you should be able to get two. I am hoping you've gotten past the first hurdle.

That sound simple but i put that on terminal and onnly opens a blue window, sems like terminal is waiting for more something, because if i close it also close the blue window.

My guess based off what you said is that the blue window opening up shows that wine is running explorer (that is the blue window) but it isn't running the actual eve exe. This is most likely the path you have provided is incorrect.

If you don't have EVE installed in the default place you will have to update that command. For example I install eve in /home/games/eve-online. I configure wine (via winecfg) to make D: the same as /home/games.

Thus according to wine the eve exe file is located at D:/eve-online/eve.exe

So when I run eve I use the following for each client:

wine explorer /desktop=EVE1,1920x1080 "D:\eve-online\eve.exe"
wine explorer /desktop=EVE2,1920x1080 "D:\eve-online\eve.exe"

Modify the last part to reflect where you have installed eve. The info you were given assumes that you just picked the default location when installing eve.

It worked, lol it was a path problem. Now i dont have sound in any of the clients running, but thanks.
